    RETROSPECTIVE
    This was my first challenge. I'm pleased with the results of this challenge. I was bleeding points here and there. I think the root of the issue is not getting to bed early enough to wake up in the morning to do the morning sessions. I'll have to watch this closely in the next challenge. Like an afterschool special, this challenge has taught me that each and every day is important. Every point counts. There's no quick shortcut to the benefits of longterm effort.

    Well, I am going to try again.

    School will be starting soon but the distractions in my life these past couple of years seem to be quieting. Maybe this time I will be successful.

    So I have a food plan designed, vitamins minerals and supplements laid out & a workout routine.

    I have been trying to do weights in the Am without much success but my work schedule would make it so much easier if I could succeed.

    My other goal is to get enough sleep.

    So here is my plan:

    Weights M W Fri

    Cardio Th & either Sat or Sun. If a 3rd day during the week, that is a bonus.

    5 meals per day

    8 glasses of water per day.

    Get to bed by 11:00 PM during the week, 1:00 AM Friday & Saturday. Sleep between 8 & 9 hours.

    One cheat meal a week.

    Shop & do cooking for week by end of Sunday.



    So to start

    Aug 1 (Saturday):

    Meal 1

    Meal 2

    Meal 3

    Meal 4

    Meal 5

    Vitamins, minerals & Supplements:

    Water:

    Cardio:

    Bedtime:


    August 2 (Sunday)

    Meal 1

    Meal 2

    Meal 3

    Meal 4

    Meal 5

    Vitamins, minerals & Supplements:

    Water:

    Cardio:

    Shopping:

    Cooking for week:

    Bedtime:
